Silly Little Bo Peep

She is so funny, we are constantly laughing with her. She is now starting to realize that she can make us laugh and enjoys the attention. She reminds me a bit of my brother with her goofiness. When he was little he was always making us laugh. I remember at the dinner table he would do stuff and we would laugh. But if his food hadn't hit his stomach yet and he was hungry he would get mad at us for laughing. He would say, "STOP LAUGHING AT ME!" Which in itself isn't funny, but the way he would say it would make us laugh even harder. I think Little Bo Peep will be like this, glad to make people laugh unless she is not intending on making you laugh.
Today she had a very hard morning. She was trying to put her shoes on and the back of the heal kept folding down so it wasn't going on the right way. Then she kept putting them on the wrong feet which was making it harder too. And all the while I was nursing so I couldn't help her. She was getting so upset and screaming and crying. So when I was able to help her she was still carrying on and I called B for some moral support. I put the shoes away thinking this would help take some of her frustration away, boy was I wrong. The crying that followed made it almost impossible to talk to B. He suggested I give her the balloons my mom got for us for Goldilocks' welcome home. She has been playing with them this week and LOVES them. So I gave her the balloons and they calmed her down. By this point it was time for lunch. This is how she ate her lunch today!
